SmoothWall Adds AJAX Interface
Based upon a security-hardened version of Linux

SmoothWall (www.smoothwall.net) announced the latest version of Advanced Firewall, its multi-function network security solution for demanding enterprise security requirements. New additions in this version include automatic fail-over to a standby system, improved load balancing, VoIP gateway protection and spam filtering.

“This new version of Advanced Firewall includes many innovative new features and builds upon existing strengths, particularly in areas such as load balancing,” said George Lungley, managing director of SmoothWall. “We have added new ways to control the distribution of outgoing traffic across multiple network connections, along with the load balancing of incoming traffic. With support for up to 20 network connections and the automatic re-routing of traffic in the event of a connection failure, this all adds up to a pretty powerful load balancing capability for improved performance and reliability.”

Based upon a security-hardened version of Linux, software installation takes less than ten minutes, with subsequent configuration and management being undertaken from any web browser using an intuitive Ajax (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) enhanced GUI. Key developments in Advanced Firewall Version 2 include:

System Resilience: In the event of a hardware problem, system operation will automatically switch to a standby Advanced Firewall system
Load Balancing: Both outgoing and incoming traffic can be load balanced across multiple Internet connections - in the event of a communications failure, all traffic from the failed connection will be automatically re-routed to other connections that are still live
VoIP: SIP proxy and gateway that can operate in both transparent and registering modes to support Voice over IP telephony
Reports and Incident alerts: Many new and improved reports and real-time AJAX based log viewers
Web security: Updated SmoothGuardian module with improved anti-spyware, anti-virus and browser exploit detection capabilities
Email Security: Integration of the Mailshell spam detection engine into the SmoothZap module provides a highly effective yet economical anti-spam capability
